Detective Benoit Blanc

Does Daniel Craig (54) play a queer character in 'Knives Out' with detective Benoit Blanc? Director Rian Johnson (48) fueled the rumor mill with a statement last weekend at a press conference on the eagerly awaited sequel 'Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery'. When asked if a scene where Blanc appears to have a male lover means his character is queer, director Rian Johnson (48) replied, 'Yes, he obviously is.'

Craig and his co-stars then burst out laughing. In any case, Johnson is very happy for Benoit and for himself about the choice of the actor who appears as Blanc's lover. 'There is no one in the world I can think of who makes me more happy for Benoit Blanc,' said the director. Craig himself added with a grin: 'No spoilers, who wouldn't want to live with this person?' The film itself should soon reveal more about Benoit Blanc's sexual orientation.

The second part again has a top-class cast

In any case, the cast of 'Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery' is not stingy with big names. These include Natasha Lyonne (43, 'Irresistible'), Edward Norton (53, 'The French Dispatch'), Janelle Monáe (36, 'Antebellum'), Kathryn Hahn (49, 'Wanda Vision'), Kate Hudson (43, 'Truth Be Told'), Leslie Odom Jr. (41, 'Hamilton') and Dave Bautista ('Guardians of the Galaxy', 53) to the top-class cast. Ethan Hawke (51, 'The Northman') has an undisclosed role. Hugh Grant (62, 'The Undoing'), the cellist Yo-Yo Ma (67), the two now deceased film stars Angela Lansbury (1925-2022) and Stephen Sondheim (1930-2021) play themselves.

The first part was well received in 2019 by both critics and audiences. The events surrounding the death of Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer, 1929-2021) brought in a multiple of its production costs. Part two will be shown in cinemas for a week from November 23, and the Netflix production will be available via the streaming service from December 23.
